Bug description:
  The only information the location indicator icon conveys currently is
  whether location detection is enabled at all, when more data could be
  interesting. Especially acquiring a GPS lock is often interesting, as
  this greatly impacts the location accuracy.

  Maybe the location icon should be dimmed when nothing is using it and
  blink when GPS lock is being acquired, bright when the lock is fine?

  The current spec is @ https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Location

  == Bug revision by charlesk 2016-01-24:

  The Location spec has been revised in this regard. The new text reads:

  > The indicator should appear in the status bar
  > whenever an app has accessed your location in
  > the past five minutes. It should list all apps
  > that have accessed your location in the past
  > five minutes, most recent first. Choosing any
  > app should switch to that app, so that you may
  > control whichever functions in that app are
  > accessing location. “Location Settings…” should
  > navigate to the “Location” screen of System
  > Settings.

  This bug is about the first part of that spec -- making the indicator
  visible when it's active -- and is (currently) blocked on location-
  service bug #1536774.

  The recent apps list component of the spec is covered in sibling bug
